Today's classrooms should support multiple learning styles while incorporating technology use in an authentic, real-world manner. To achieve this digital age learning environment, Walter McKenzie brings together ideas from multiple intelligences and project-based learning to develop a new instructional model, the Intelligence Quest (IQuest).
This flexible, self-directed learning journey approach provides educators with a clear structure and specific goals for a technology-infused classroom.
Intelligence Quest provides an in-depth overview of the IQuest-what it is and how it can be adapted for use in any subject or any classroom. McKenzie breaks down the nine intelligences into three domains: thinking critically, thinking within, and thinking outward; provides example IQuests for each; and links each IQuest to the corresponding NETS-S. This new instructional model will push your thinking and help you develop meaningful learning experiences. Discover how you can bring the IQuest into your classroom, and show your students that learning in school can mirror learning in the real world.
